Borna Barisic has had a fantastic start to the new campaign for Glasgow Rangers.
The 27-year-old, who has 12 caps for Croatia, has started every game so far this term for the Gers. During that time, he has managed one goal and three assists, with him averaging a WhoScored rating of 7.67 – it is quite clear he is one of the most important players in Steven Gerrard’s squad.
His performances, though, appear to have attracted the interest of Premier League club Leeds United – who have already had a bid rejected for Ryan Kent. Sportske Novosti are reporting that the Gers have turned down a bid of €9m (£8m) for the left-back – although there appears to be some confusion, with Leeds Live saying that the offer was just £6.25m.
Is Barisic Rangers' best player?
The latter sum has got the Gers fans talking, and they seem disgusted by the offer – they believe he is worth an awful lot more. They took to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
That’s total nonsense mate, there is no offer from Leeds as for the figure that’s just laughable.

Leeds united bidding £6.2 million for the Croatian number 1 left back ( borna barisic) is the biggest joke I’ve seen on twitter all year

If it’s true Leeds have bid £6.2m for Barisic, it just shows their complete disrespect for the club & the league.
We shouldn’t do any business with them at all if so.

I would even take that call. I’d press the cancel button

In the 70s a famous Yorkshire saying was How Much? It seems they are still living in the old days. I’d have him 20 million plus sell on clauses, message to Leeds – do one

Leeds trying to get Kent & Barisic for under 10mil & West Brom are signing some nobody from Huddersfield for 16mil, no questions asked.
We should stop dealing with English clubs.
